Function documentationCreation of Costing Items

 

You can edit costing items in the list screen of the unit cost estimate or in the detail screen for the costing item. The list screen gives you an overview of all costing items. The detail screen gives you more information on a particular costing item.

You can also create costing items with multilevel unit costing instead of (or in addition to) single-level unit costing.

Features

In unit costing, you enter the costing items manually. Each costing item must be assigned to an item category.
